Our Story

Cameron Whitson, our President's grandson, passed away in May, 2020 from a drug overdose. So his death and legacy would not be in vain, we prayerfully elected to inaugurate Cameron's House of Hope — a non-profit organization unlike any other in our area. Twenty-five percent of kids growing up today are living with at least one substance-abusive parent. Because of that, the children are twice as likely to develop an addictive behavior themselves.

Through Cameron's House of Hope, we work to do all we can to change the trajectory of each child and give them hope, so no parent or grandparent would have to experience the pain and suffering of the loss of a child due to drug overdose.
